Home Made Pasta Sauce

Okay so technically it's not completely home made, but it sure tastes like it.

2 Tbs. olive oil
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1 (28oz) jar of your favorite pasta sauce
1 tsp. sugar
1 roma tomato (finely chopped)
1/4 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. thyme

In a medium saucepan heat olive oil over medium/high heat. Add onion and saute until tender. Add garlic to onions and saute for only 45 seconds or the garlic will become bitter. Add a jar of pasta sauce, sugar, tomato, oregano, thyme and mix together. Simmer over low heat for 15 minute to blend the flavors. Use this sauce in any of your favorite pasta dishes. I've used it on tortellini, lasagna, parmesian chicken, meatballs, pasta and lots others. This sauce freezes awesome!!! I always make a double batch and freeze the excess.
